CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Jenna Mae Ellsworth is the UPEI Panther Subway athlete of the week.
She is a second-year guard on the women’s basketball team and a science student from Charlottetown.
Ellsworth played a key role in helping the Panthers get to the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) final Sunday in Halifax. The Panthers defeated UNB 76–70 in Thursday’s quarter-final and Cape Breton 78-73 in Friday’s semifinal before losing in the final to Acadia 80-58. Ellsworth played every minute of the Panthers three games on the weekend, averaging more than 22 points per game and was named to the tournament all-star team.
“Jenna Mae had an outstanding AUS tournament at both end of the floor,” said coach Greg Gould. “She was our leader on offence and defence.”
